Use the sun and our dyes to create amazing effects!
Dye and dyeing instructions are included in these kits. Sun Dye is also great for tie dying.
How do they work? Our dye kits are made with ingredients that are ecofriendly and non-toxic.
Paint your fabric with dye and then arrange your found objects to create a design. After exposing it to the sun, ghost like shapes will reflect the image of your opaque shapes.
The application is simple.
Collect a number of items that can be used to block the sun. They include: stones, card, leaves, twigs, stencils, sand, coins etc.
Mix the dye colour of choice in a half water, half dye mix and apply to prewashed fabric. Work on a firm board so that your work is easily transported.
You may like to wet the material with water first for a more diffused effect.
Arrange your found items and simply take outside in the sun and expose until fully dry.
After removing the items fix the dye with a dry iron as hot as the fabric will allow.
The colours will be bright and the only thing to remember is to wash the material with cold water and detergent when dyeing process is finished.
